Anti-Gay Pastor Buys Starbucks To Boycott Starbucks


Starbucks reported last month that their sales and stocks have not been impacted one bit by the National Organization for Marriage's boycott over the coffee giant's pro-gay policies.

Perhaps Bob Enyart, the pastor at Denver Bible Church, is a reason why: protesters are buying the coffee to pour it into sewers. Jeremy Hooper at Good.As.You writes: "I'm pretty sure Starbucks is okay with one feeding his or her Venti Machiatto to the sewer, just as long as one purchases said frothy beverage."

Watch Enyart's protest, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Brilliant way to boycott Starbucks, go and buy their coffee. Keep doing that, pastor Dumbshit.

  2. Someone is obviously unclear on the concept of a BOYCOTT. How exactly does BUYING a product (paying the company) and then disposing of it cause any harm to the company?

    I'm confused.

  3. This is just the sort of twisted logic I've grown to expect from the Righties.

  4. If you had to guess this pastor's sexual orientation, what would you guess?

  5. Yes he does look like a big old gay bear...
    So sad, instead of throwing money away he could have bought lunch for a homeless person !!

  6. As a Denverite, I would like to note that this church is located squarely in the city of Arvada and not the wonderful city of Denver.

  11. Not really sure how environmentally friendly pouring coffee in the sewers is.

  12. 1) he needs to replace his Bible with a dictionary since he obviously does not understand the meaning of the word boycott.
    2) I hope the money he is wasting does not come from the collection plate.
    3) if he really does not want to drink the coffee why not give it to a homeless person who might actually enjoy it.

  14. Wow. A "social conservative" even more mind-numbingly ignorant than the Palin family! Who would have though this was even a possbility?

  16. Delightful stupidity!

  17. I call on my fellow conservatives to start boycotting public libraries. After all, as a right-wing leader told me years ago in a personal letter, "almost all librarians are liberal." This is why the library's collection is so slanted to the political left. So, fellow Republicans, return those books and withdraw from the library patron population. We'll become even more ignorant due to a lack of access to free information, but hey.....that'll show 'em, won't it!?

    ................(a joke, folks!)

  18. Meanwhile, did you notice that 1) The coffee had milk or cream in it already and 2) There was no way that was a full Venti. The dope obviously drank a good bit of it before dumping it. Stupid.

  19. "Frothy" beverage? When did Rickydink Santorum hook up with Starbucks?

  20. He's boycotting "Ellen" by watching her show everyday and holding up the Bible to the tv screen.

  21. pastor, let me explain to you the concept of cutting off your nose to spite your face.

  22. Buying Starbucks and then throwing it down the sewer is hurting Starbucks how? Evangelical circle jerk thinking. LOVE IT!!!

  23. Is this a joke about social conservatives or about pastors? Maybe both?

  25. Mary, I know you're joking, but at least at our local library we have had a real problem with a form of censorship that's rarely addressed, "conservative" or Religious Right groups checking out books or videos they are opposed to and never returning them. The problem mostly centers around one local church, but we've had a real problem keeping gay affirmative material on the shelves for that reason.

    We knew there was a problem but didn't realize it was organized until the movie "Brokeback Mountain" was released on DVD several years ago. Every copy we bought was checked out and never returned, and it was only when we did some detective work that we finally figured out what was happening. People were coming in and signing up to be new patrons then checking out that DVD, and neither the patron nor the movie were seen again.

    Unfortunately that tactic works rather well because libraries keep expecting the material will come back and it takes a while before it's classified as permanently "lost." Even if payment is made for the lost items that doesn't necessarily mean another copy of the same book or video is ordered; with budgets the way they are (even before the budget cuts of the past several years) there are always new things that have to be paid for so replacing "old" material falls by the wayside.

    And even if you suspect that's what a patron is up to, you can't refuse to check out material to someone based on a hunch.
